“The present owner has undertaken an extensive programme of improvements. The course is well kept, free draining and offers wide fairways and large tees for the more novice and mid handicap golfer

“It also has a large commercially configured clubhouse which generates a substantial level of food, beverage and function trade. The present owner has operated the course on a lifestyle basis and offers significant potential for a new owner.”
